These were so good and my husband and son both gave it a 5 star rating. I didn't have a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce so I added 2 8oz. cans of tomato sauce that were seasoned with basil, garlic & oregano. I also added two tblsp. of balsamic vinegar to the tomato sauce. I used 3 bone-in center cut chops and the meat was just falling of the bone. Thanks Calicat for an easy and delicious recipe!

Easy to make, just used a small amount of taco seasoning and added picante sauce to my husbands chops. Next time I will mix tomatoe sauce and picante 1/2 and 1/2. My husband loved them.
